The city of Biarritz will organize the 2017 ISA World Surfing Games.

The last time Biarritz hosted the World Surfing Games was 37 years ago, in 1980. Back then, the birth of French surfing saw Tom Curren claiming the gold medal in the Junior division.

The International Surfing Association (ISA) notes that the global event returns to Europe since 2008 when Costa da Caparica, in Portugal, welcomed some of the world’s best surfers.
